      Great job with your first sentence, Wagner! You used the present perfect correctly because you are giving us *new information* and you didn’t specify the time.

    • timandtammy

      Great job, Fabian! Let me just make a little correction:

      …and I’ve been enjoying it! (or) …and I’ve enjoyed it!

      (The first option is called “present perfect continuous”, and it *emphasizes* that your studies continue in the present.)

      Reply
    • timandtammy

      Present Perfect also indicates that something continues in the present; but the continuous *emphasizes* this fact.

    now because I think you have many things to teach us. At the appropriate moment I will have my questions if it is necessary. My best,

      Unfortunately many products are “cheapened” when they are made/sold in Brazil. I believe it is because of the high taxes, so companies need to cut back on the raw material to break even.

      Hello, Jorge. There are three forms of any verb in English. Present – Past – Past Participle (go – went – gone (irregular) ; live – lived – lived (regular)). You will learn when to use the Past Participle in different contexts. For example, you will always use the Past Participle with the Present Perfect). Subject + have/has + Past Participle.

    Troquei meu carro por outro usado ou semi novo por exemplo.
